How did you hear about this project?
Practice giving positive feedback.
To make sure we're all on the same page about giving positive feedback, please take a few minutes to read the following excerpt and offer some positive feedback. You can comment on individual words or phrases, overall themes, ideas you loved, or something else entirely. (In the real edition, you and your partner will choose how you want to share feedback, i.e. a Word doc with comments, Google doc, etc.) For now, just write a few sentences of positive feedback.
Some commitments: To ensure that all participants are embarking on this adventure with clear expectations, please read and agree to the following statements.
